About the Event

Did You Know that the GRAMMY Awards, the Oscars, and many other major television shows hire bassists like Rickey Minor and Derrick Hodge as musical directors for their live broadcasts. Did you know that John Clayton, a bassist, did the arrangement for Whitney Houston’s iconic version of The Star-Spangled Banner? Would you like to have the same skills as these wonderful musicians? If so, keep reading. If not, definitely keep reading.

The bassist of any ensemble is the link between rhythm and harmony. And because we are required to live in both worlds, we must have special skills that aren’t always expected from other musicians. To have a successful career as a bassist, certain skills are a must. Although some are obvious, many of these skills are rarely spoken about. But, with awareness and practice, all are obtainable.

Whether your desire is to become a touring bassist, musical director, pit or symphony bassist, orchestrator, studio musician, educator, or a local “Weekend Warrior” in your town, you’ve come to the right place. Allow Victor Wooten and his expert team to help you move closer to living your dreams.
